We went late (9:00 PM) on a Monday and had a great meal with wonderful service by Carlo and his assistant. Food was perfectly prepared, wine by the glass was excellent, service was exceptional, and the ambience was terrific. We've eaten in a lot of restaurants in Pittsburgh over the decades and this was one of the most memorable dining experiences

An amazing birthday dinner! Capital Grille is a gem within the city limits of Pittsburgh. Just outside of Market Square lies one of the most supreme fine dining establishments. Our overall experience, from Vallet to the food was exceptional. We came here for a birthday dinner. Our table was decorated upon arrival, complete with a sweet birthday note. Right away, we knew we were in for a treat! The service: when I say the service at Capital Grille is exceptional, it is a genuine sentiment. Our server, Carlo, was the epitome of world class service. He made us feel like we were his only table, and he made sure no wish went unfulfilled. From recommending the perfect appetizers, to selecting the best glasses wine, he made sure we got exactly what we wanted. I would argue we would have had a lesser experience, if not for the amazing service provided by Carlo. The food: —-Appetizers- we got the bacon, lobster and crab cake, and the calamari. The bacon was the highlight. Image a bacon steak, with the fat perfectly rendered. Coming in 2nd was the calamari- their signature. No sauce required. The calamari was perfectly tender and juicy. The lobster and crab cake was also good. Not as memorable, but impeccably presented. —-The entrees- while I am not a big steak person, I still found items that were delicious and crave-able. I had the burrata and heirloom tomato salad and jumbo lump crab cocktail. Both were exquisite in their presentation and taste. My family got the 8oz fillet and Gorgonzola steak. Rave reviews all around. —-the desert: OMG the crème brule cheesecake will live in my head rent free for years to come. It was the perfect end to the meal. Not too sweet, beautifully presented, and delicious. Shoutout to the staff for bringing the birthday girl a special treat! If you are ever in Pittsburgh, the Capital Grille is a must stop fine dining experience.

Excellent all around, a beautiful atmosphere with so much ambience. Service was excellent, from water glasses never being left half full to the server packing your leftover meal for you and bringing it back to your table to you. Great cocktails. Had the bone in ribeye, medium rare.. perfect. All of the side dishes at the table were perfect as well.. lobster Mac and cheese, creamed corn and grilled mushrooms. Even a great variety of a bread basket. A definite example of getting what you pay for. Our server, Ryan, made the experience exactly what we expected. We will ask for him again and again.

I'd like to note that while we overall did not love the food, our waitress was very attentive and friendly. For appetizers we had the prosciutto- wrapped mozzarella and the pan fried calamari. Unfortunately, the mozzarella dish was burned on the bottom. The calamari was okay, but Ive had better. Dinner: I had the Pan-Seared Sea Bass with Miso butter. I actually enjoyed my dinner. The fish was cooked nicely and was tasty. My husband had the Porcini Rubbed Ribeye. He asked for it to be cooked to medium. It came out more on the rare side. We ordered parmesan truffle fries and au gratin potatoes for the table. They were inedible. The flavors just were not it. We will not go back. For $400+ I would absolutely choose somewhere else.

In Pittsburgh, The Capital Grille provides a really special dining experience. A warm and inviting atmosphere greets you as soon as you walk through the magnificent door. The restaurant is ideal for special occasions or upmarket meals since it radiates sophistication and charm. Here, the service is excellent. The personnel is polite, informed, and always willing to provide suggestions. While there is a greater price tag associated with this caliber of service, for individuals who want to commemorate a particular occasion or have an absolutely remarkable dining experience, it is well worth the investment. Pittsburgh's Capital Grille is a place for people who value exquisite cuisine, faultless service, and a classy setting.

While visiting Pittsburgh we wanted to go to Capital Grille as we are steady customers in our hometown. And it was truly amazing. It is a nicely decorated restaurant. We had prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella as an appetizer. One of the best appetizers I have ever had. Our main dishes were cooked to perfection, sliced filet and sea bass. But it was not totally the food that made our evening perfect it was our waitress, Darla. She was very knowledgeable and provided us with seamless unobtrusive service through our entire meal. We truly appreciated this rare professionalism.

This was the first time we ate at a Capital Grille Restaurant. Don't know whether this is part of a restaurant chain or a franchise restaurant but our experience was first class. Our cocktails were well made and generous pours and the food was memorable. Service from Horacio was excellent and the ambiance in this good sized operation is attractive and there was a good crowd but noise levels were not a problem.

Not just a great meal, but a dining experience. It was an anniversary meal which all of the staff noted. Our waiter, Carlo, was such a big part of making the event such a memorable time. Each menu item was superb and was served with a flourish.

The valet said to me” this is capital grille, are you sure you want to come here? He asked me twice. I replied “ yes! Is there a problem? He said “No”. After going inside we were told without reservations there was a 30 min wait, but was offered full service at the bar. My spouse and I went to the bar. A heavy weight gentleman walked by and hit my chair and didn’t say excuse me. I pulled my chair in. A second man came by and brushed against me chair. Started to feel a little uncomfortable. We ordered ribeye steak which was delicious! They were large too! No sides come with it. So we had to order sides for extr $$$. This Resturant was very $$$. The food was good though. Wasn’t feeling the atmosphere though…. Didn’t seem to friendly. We asked to take our leftovers back to the hotel. Again the food was good!

We went for our annual generous pour. The wines did disappoint. Unfortunately our waiter did not explain any of the wines until we completed to another waitress. Food was ok but wines on generous pour a bit disappointing.

I returned to the Capital Grille for a business dinner. As usual, it was an excellent dining experience. The wine list was extensive. While some selections were priced very high there were some excellent values by the bottle. I was a little disappointed there wasn't a better selection of sparkling wines (it was either cheap or overpriced expensive without much in-between). The shrimp cocktail had excellent presentation. The bread was addicting. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked medium rare. One of the best steaks I've had in a long time. The only complaint I had was the waiter's wine service. He didn't pour a taste of bottle. Instead, it poured a full glass. His refills were also too much unless the intent was to go through the bottle quickly so a second would be ordered. That aside, the overall experience was excellent. I will return.

Had a 8:15 reservation, we were not seated until 9:15. They took us to the middle of the dining room at 8:45 and stated that they made a mistake with our table and let us stand there for 5 minutes only to bring us back to the lobby to wait another 1/2 hour for a table. We only got a table after we noticed people with later reservations getting seated. When I asked what time the previously seated couple had a reservation for I was told 8:30 but they were V.I.P.. The food was not worth the wait at all, save your time and money and pick another restaurant.
